Hello World! This blog supports the Open European Network for Enterprise Innovation in High Value Manufacturing (ENTOV-HVM).
ENTOV-HVM is a purposeful, sustainable, open, self-organizing and living European web of relationships for rapidly nurturing high potential high value manufacturing innovations to industrial adoption by young researchers and early career investigators.
ENTOV-HVM is focused on using advanced complex and living network facilitation principles for creating that moderated “space” which autonomously attracts not only innovators and early career investigators, but also motivated mentors from research and industry in order to populate the key roles of a successful innovation web.
ENTOV-HVM is focused on high potential high value manufacturing innovations at low technical readiness levels which require specific advanced collaboration and simulation capabilities, and capacity acquisition and capability development enterprise innovation networks typically used by mature research and industry organizations. ENTOV-HVM will quickly and repeatedly initiate, define, manage and optimize “child” webs for nurturing individual suitable innovations through the research, community building, market validation and commercialization phases of the innovation zone maturation process.
ENTOV-HVM stands on the “shoulders of giants". It is inspired by the work and approach of the UK Innovation Agency which is part of the UK Research and Innovation Agency. It is further dedicated in memory to the thought leaders Debra Mae Amidon on Enterprise Innovation and Bryan Elliot Davis on Knowledge Innovation Zones. Unique to the project is central concept of “web weaving”.

Dear all - below a first draft of this proposal section for review. "Describe and explain the overall concept underpinning the project. Describe the main ideas, models or assumptions involved. Identify any inter-disciplinary considerations and, where relevant, use of stakeholder knowledge. Where relevant, include measures taken for public/societal engagement on issues related to the project. Describe the positioning of the project e.g. where it is situated in the spectrum from ‘idea to application’, or from ‘lab to market’. Refer to Technology Readiness Levels where relevant. (See General Annex G of the work programme )" The overall concept underpinning the proposal is that the degree of digital security for extended supply chain ecosystems of SMEs and MEs  is based on the attention given to the issue by the individual ecosystem participants themselves. Indeed, without this attention, the importance of the issue will not be recognized in the first place and the
A video showing the sequential transactions is available here - https://youtu.be/jGAgJGaht-I . Note that the speed of the video can be adjusted in YouTube as desired . This living systems map represents a simple generic narrative for the diffusion of innovations . The narrative is applicable for all types of innovations and is distilled from a wide spectrum of research results and contemporary work-flow structures in industry . The narrative serves as a baseline for starting exploration on the nature and behavior of difussion of innovations to then provide the foundation for determining actionable interventions which can disruptively accelerate it. The narrative describes the key roles and exchanges involved from ideation through research triggered by a challenge from users to investment payback to the supporting investor . Roles are shown in grey shaded oval shap
Dear all, The submission of our ACT-FAST proposal (~ ACCELERATING DEEP DIFFUSION OF DIGITAL SECURITY SOLUTIONS IN HIGH VALUE MANUFACTURING (S)ME ECOSYSTEMS ~ ) on Thursday 27 August marked a further milestone in our development as "...a trustworthy, deeply connected group of diverse world-class game changers, at all career stages, from multiple disciplines with a passion for innovation and addressing industrial and societal challenges. We collaborate in an open, adaptive and tribal network based on archetypal patterns of innovation success." Under the leadership of Maynooth University and strong participation of our new friends from VTT, Tel Aviv University, UniSmart, InfoTeam International and Vidzeme University we were able to submit a high quality proposal for a "really really" good idea. As a reminder "The vision of ACT-FAST is to establish, enable and accelerate learning communities, that share knowledge regarding digital security related incidents and ri
